're having a hearing this morning on the nuclear reactor disaster in japan. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2011] >> ok, why don't we get started? thank you all for being here. this is a briefing, not a hearing as such. i think the reason we tried to do it as a briefing is so people would not have to file written testimony 72 hours ahead of time and all that. things are changing very quickly with regard to the evolving situation at the fukushima daiichi nuclear power plant. while this committee does not have oversight on the safety of u.s. nuclear plants, we do have to consider how events such as those at fukushima affected the ability of our nation's nuclear freedom, 104 reactors, to supply electricity. of course, these 104 reactors currently account for about 20% of the electricity that we use and what the future of nuclear energy will be as part of our nation's energy banks. events at fukushima are changing by the our. they are serious, and we are watching those events unfold on the other side of the world. our know

is happening over in libya, north africa, the middle east, and you have to throw japan in the picture as well. on word of the ceasefire we did indeed see crude oil futures turn lower by a couple of dollars even. now we've seen them completely take a reverse course. oil prices are higher. over a hundred dollars a barrel. now we are topping 101 thrarz a barrel. we had been as high as $103 and change overnight. obviously there is a lot of doubt right now over whether or not moammar gadhafi really means business here, whether he's going to stick to his word. the oil markets shall starting to doubt that a little bit. that's why we see prices turning higher. jenna you also have to throw japan into the picture. you have all these economists and analysts weighing in on whether or not the rebuilding and restructuring efforts over in japan will eventually lead to more demand nor oil. immediately after the earthquake and tsunami we saw oil prices retreat on the fact that that country may not need as much energy in the short term. now these markets are starting to look longer terms not only at libya and
